Established in 1894
Situated in Stockport where the Cheshire Plain meets the High Peak, the village of Mellor and its Golf Club are steeped in history, and the course is well known as one of Cheshire’s ‘Hidden Gems of Golf’.
In 1745 John Wesley, the famous Methodist Minister, stood on what is now the 10th fairway and described the view that stretched before him as “Paradise”.
Over 100 years later the first holes were laid out on the very same land and Mellor Golf Club was born in 1894.
The Townscliffe Golf Club across the valley, adjacent to Mellor Church, was founded in 1908 and lasted for twelve years before it joined with Mellor in 1920, and in accordance with a promise made to the members at that time Mellor and Townscliffe Golf Club was soon extended to 18 holes.
During its 100 plus year history the club has been resident in three counties, Derbyshire, Greater Manchester and finally Cheshire where it has remained ever since.

We are sure that we can find a slot for most things within section……just contact anyone of the Web Team.
In The Clubhouse & Dining Room
As we are a club that welcomes walkers and general members of the public, our dress code in the clubhouse is less strict. However, we do ask golfers to adhere to the standards of smart casual dress, which includes
- Tailored trousers or shorts
- Shirts with collar, turtle neck or T-shirts are permitted
- Smart denim and trainers are permitted
- Golf shoes are not permitted in the bar
Although we will not enforce a rule, we hope that golfers will have the etiquette to remove their headgear when in the clubhouse.
Mobile phones can be used in the clubhouse and carpark but should not be used on the balcony when golfers are playing or approaching the 18th green. We ask golfer to refrain from using their mobile phone during presentations.
